|Sondheim - Death III b/w Death V - 442-net7-06jun - Sondheim|
A departure from the usual electronic leanings, as 4-4-2 Music begins to truly branch out, and we are proud to present these 2 tracks of improvised zither tones. The tracks relate to mourning, the Alps, romanticism, Webern... Death III is made playing what are known as an elegie concert zither and a prime concert zither simultaneously.
